LANSING, MINN.—Stock Car racing action resumed Friday Night at Chateau Raceway in Lansing after three weeks of rain-outs but not without Mother Nature keeping officials watching the radar screen. As action got underway radar was showing rain about 60 miles out but it never made it to the track and the full nights action ran off without any moisture from the heavens interfering.

Eighty-four cars filled the pits for the nights action with 18 drivers making their first appearance of the season at the track.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature was slowed by numerous cautions. Derek Clement of Spring Valley and Kadden Kath of Owatonna started front row and dueled through the early laps with each leading at some point. Clement got the jump on the initial start but that was wiped out by a quick caution. Kath got the advantage on the next restart and held the lead until Clement went to the front on lap 6.

That lasted until lap 10 when Kadden got the better of it off a restart and went back to the point but that lasted just four laps as something let go in his car and and trail of smoke and fluids followed him into turn three ending his night. That fluid sent several cars spinning and Clements race ended up ending early as well as a couple others. When the dust finally settled after the final restart it was Kylie Kath who started back in row four running his string of feature wins to open the year to four.

Alex Williamson of Rushford and Mark Wytaske of Austin battled it out for second the final laps with Alex getting that spot. A couple drivers who started deep in the field made nice runs into the top five with Jayden Larson of Mankato finishing fourth ahead of Taylor Ausrud of Hayfield. The classes heat wins went to Anthony Condit of Austin, Dustin Kruse of Brandon South Dakota and Ausrud.

In USRA Modified action Brandon Davis of Medford scored his third feature win of the year at the track. Joe Horgdahl of Kasson lead the races first five laps before Davis swung by him for the lead.

Josh Angst of Winona and Jason Cummins of New Richland started side by side back in row four and never got far from each other as they worked through the field to finish second and third. Horgdahl held on for fourth ahead of Greg Pfeifer JR of Brownsdale,. Pfeifer and Cummins picked up the classes heat wins.

The track also made an announcement that the 19th Annual Mike Guttormson Memorial make up date has been set. The race was rained out on Memorial Day Weekend and the new date will be the final Friday, July 29. It was also announced that the USMTS will highlight the night's race card for the memorial event.
